At this current time, it has been vital to keep safe and well by staying at home.
With this, comes huge frustration for many children & young people who will be missing members of their friends and family, whilst losing the routine of going to school and clubs.
However, one of our participants, Alfie, has been keeping himself busy by making home skills videos for everyone to try out!
We’ve enjoyed the videos so much, we decided to catch up with Alfie about his time at home.
RDP: What Programme do you attend?
“I attend the March Player Development Centre.”
RDP: What do you enjoy about the coaching at your centre?
“I enjoy the amount of time I get with a ball at my feet and the games at the end!”
RDP: How have you kept yourself active during the lockdown?
“I have kept myself active by going out once a day and playing football in the garden. I've also been doing the Joe Wicks PE sessions and going on a bike ride. The videos I've been making have allowed me to focus and continue to be positive.
“The lockdown has made me feel more determined and I want to push myself in the future, making the videos has made me realise I can push myself further.”
RDP: What do you want to be when you grow up?
“I want to be a footballer!”
Alfie’s dad Bruce was happy to see his son working on a new skill whilst developing another, saying:
“Alfie has really enjoyed researching various training videos, adapting, making and editing his own. It’s keeping him mentally and physically active and gives him focus. Norwich have been very proactive and have given him plenty of support to do this.
“He will come out of isolation with the ability to produce his own videos, which is a real skill.
“We also must thank coach Michael Browning who has supported Alfie at his development centre, without his input, Alfie wouldn’t be the same when it came to his training”.

A big well done from everyone at the RDP to Alfie for his efforts, and we can’t wait to see him and everyone back at training when we return.
